This paper reports development of novel micro fluidic device using surface acoustic wave (SAW). The device can control micro channel flow with flow rate ranging from 1.5 to 700 nl/min. We found that two different driving modes exist depending on the channel height. Also reported here is how liquid droplet motion changes by experimental conditions.
